not by that % lol,

but my lifts definitely are higher at anywhere else other than sports club

the floor is harder at sports central, meaning more force transference to the bar and also the barbell is easier to grip and balance due to it being thinner and newer

We are just use to uneven soft ground, shitty plates that range from 42- 48 lbs, and bent barbells. Training on a even hard ground with an actual good barbell made a huge difference.

I know this sounds completely stupid but I think I've overtrained my hands/grip. On 531 I would deadlift once a week and did pullups/row in between ever set for my shoulders and chest day. Now my grip has gone to absolute shit and I struggle to hold only 285 for a set of 3

Do you have any pain in your elbow/wrist? Or is just lack of strength in your grip

It's probably just fatigue. Maybe invest in some wrist straps to to transfer some weight to your upper arms

yeah forearms are just like any other muscle, except it takes whole lot more beating than the other muscles, so it gets doms too

i used to think straps were a handicap, but when your grip gives, you still gotta train so do what you gotta do imo. long term use is bad, but if it's to the point where it's affecting your overall lifts i say go for it

also grip strength training is underrated - so many guys get wrist pain cus they got weak grip

and wow weird, never knew 531 had a template where they make u do rows in between sets

It's just an added for those who want more pulling and back movements.

Speaking of 5/3/1, I've been doing front squats in replacement of back squats and pulling sumo. Loving the explosiveness I'm getting pulling conventional. I can front squat 245 now

Farmer walks are gold BTW. Thanks whoever mentioned it a year ago.

Its not in the template but from his book:

"Although it is not written in the template, I always do some kind of pulling movement between the main sets (yes, even the squat and deadlift). This is usually chin-ups/pull-ups, T-bar rows, face pulls, band pull-aparts, or bent over lateral raises."

Stupid question I'm sure, but how important is sleep for training? Not just rest, but sleep.

Out of the blue my work has changes my hours to help out in filling a void. Usually i work 2:15pm to 10:45pm, but starting tomorrow i work 4:15am to 12:45pm for the next few weeks. As you can imagine my sleep is goin to be absolute shit. But is it okay for my body/muscles if a least i get down time or rest? Not including mental fatigue i suppose

ur the intrinsic to intrinsic motivation, wish i could do that. i honestly think that's one of the best attributes to have, is being able to train hard regardless of energy level

if i don't have a good sleep, i end up going to the gym wasting time. not gonna lie, i've taken a nap in the stretching area a few times cus i was just so tired. for me, there's no preworkout cocktail that can replace lack of sleep

I feel the same way. Sleep cures all. No matter how much caffeine i take, it still doesn't beat rest.

when you guys first started working out, how quickly did you build strength on your bench press? did you ever have a week where you broke a new PR, and then follow it up by doing 5-10 lbs less the week after?

Always. But i do a lot of progressive overloading on the bench now and my bench has gone up quite a bit the last few months. You might look stupid in the gym but i always have my spotter help me with forced reps.

An hour of sleep and a long work day meant for a weak workout went lighter on 160lb dead lifts and just practiced my form. Last time at the gym i watched some kids do PR single plates. Knees locked out and full arched back. I groaned just watching them man. Looked ridiculous

My work schedule is probably the most effed up this out there. Up 24 hours, sleep for a few. Up for a few more nap, up for 24. Crash as long as I can. I don't have a good workout until in well rested. It's my biggest deterrent.
